In 2009, Peter Coghlan came on to Britain’s Got Talent, and started performing a belly dance in drag as Mama Trish, an act he’d been performing for 26 years. To Simon Cowell he was a joke. And Simon’s biggest surprise was not that he got through to the semi final, but that he had been with his wife for 36 years.
It was a sign to me, that he and his partner could be committed simply to being their empowered selves. Committed to living and loving in integrity. Allowing each other to follow their own path.
